1998 Baron Philippe de Rothschild Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac

Wine Description

(From 1982 Vintage) This has always been one of the wines of the vintage. Harmonious and beautifully structured. Brilliant ruby color, with a hint of garnet. A bounty of cherry, tobacco and cedar aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and tannic, with velvety texture and medium finish.

    WA96 Drink 2012-2050 Like many of its peers, the 1998 has filled out spectacularly. Now in the bottle, this opaque black/purple-colored offering has increased in stature, richness, and size. A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc (57% of the production was utilized), it is an extremely powerful, super-concentrated wine offering notes of roasted espresso, creme de cassis, smoke, new saddle leather, graphite, and licorice. It is massive, with awesome concentration, mouth-searing tannin levels, and a saturated flavor profile that grips the mouth with considerable intensity. This is a 50-year Mouton, but patience will be required as it will not be close to drinkability for at least a decade. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050.

    두번째 마시는 무똥75 벽갈색 아직 살아있는 탄닌감 버섯향 흑연 올빈특유의 흙내음이 잘 아우러진 적절한 구조감 양이 적어서 시간에 따른 변화를 보지 못함 특별한 감동은 없는 빈티지임
